BEGIN AGAIN (2013)
Begin Again || Dan Mulligan (Mark Ruffalo) is a formerly successful record label executive living in New York City who is estranged from his wife Miriam (Catherine Keener) and struggling to keep up with the changing music industry. After being fired from his job, he goes on a drinking binge which leads him to a bar in the Lower East Side where he encounters Gretta James (Keira Knightley). Gretta is a young and fiercely independent songwriter who has just broken up with her long-time boyfriend and songwriting partner Dave Kohl (Adam Levine), a newly successful musician who had an affair with one of his producers’ assistants. Captivated by Gretta’s music, Dan offers to sign her to his former record label, and although she initially refuses she reconsiders the offer and agrees.
Dan and Gretta meet with Saul, Dan’s business partner and co-founder of their record label. But he does not see the same potential in Gretta and turns her away. Undeterred, Dan proposes that he and Gretta produce their own album together. To be recorded live during the summer at various public locations around New York City. Recruiting a team of talented musicians, including Steve (a busker and an old best friend of Gretta’s), Dan sets out to make an album worthy of being published by his label. During this time, Dan and Gretta bond both personally and professionally, and Gretta takes Dan’s teenage daughter Violet, a fledgling guitarist, under her wing and encourages her to play on the album.
